Is Cyberpunk 2077 on PS5? CD Projekt Red's open world role-playing game was announced over seven years ago, but it didn't enter full development until around 2017. It was back then that the title was locked for PS4, as the PS5 wouldn't be officially acknowledged until a couple of years later. In this Cyberpunk 2077 guide, we're going to look at the game's next-gen situation.
Cyberpunk 2077: Is It on PS5?
Cyberpunk 2077 is set to release on the 10th December 2020 for PS4 — but what about PS5? At launch, the game will be playable on PS5 via PS5 backwards compatibility. Technically, you'll still be playing the PS4 version on your PS5, but the more powerful console ensures better technical performance.
A full PS5 version of Cyberpunk 2077 will launch at some point in 2021 — we don't have a date or release window yet. If you buy Cyberpunk 2077 on PS4, you'll be able to upgrade to the PS5 version when it arrives. This will be a free upgrade, so you won't have to pay anything extra.
